    To Get the Best Gig, Expand Your Repertoire -

    Having begun his career at United Parcel Service (UPS) three decades ago as a driver, you might expect CFO Kurt Kuehn to know the company inside and out. During his long tenure he has managed such business functions as financial analysis, industrial engineering, and strategic costing for the shipping giant, enjoying the kind of linear career path that barely required him to turn the wheel.

    With one exception: in 1999 he was unexpectedly asked to serve as UPS's first head of investor relations. The job was hardly trivial, since UPS was about to launch what was, at the time, the largest initial public offering of the 20th century.
